screen the way that he is now. i think one of the lessons in the learning curve for president obama has been the importance of communication. a lot of different issues that are important to him to his presidency. you do have to have the presence. the whole purpose of these kinds of acts of terrorism is to destabilize you, make you afraid to get on the subway. to make you afraid to go into a mall. to make you afraid, no matter where you are, even if you're far from the actual incident. having sort of one person that is constantly communicating with you is very important. i mean we learned after 9/11 that when george w. bush didn't do it, rudy giuliani stepped in. so the whole country was waiting for him to come on the television for those first couple of weeks, because you didn't see the president. and i think president obama has learned the lesson that you do have to speak early, speak often, speak confidently and i'm glad he's kind of cautious, to be honest with you. i know sometimes there's a fetish in american for sort of bellicose language. it makes us feel we're going to get whoeve

. president obama going back to his days of harvard. his personal experiences in the city. feeling that a part of him is hurting because of what happened to this city i think is an incredibly important part of the message. >> and in many ways the speech sort of starts like a marathon. it's slow and quiet because there's a long engineerny, you can sense in the middle of the speech and towards the end, the adrenaline of the president, just like the adrenaline of the rubber ki runner kicking in. going up the one last hill. looking toward the finish line with those helping you get there. >> the stories i'll never forget, is the guy who loses two legs, someone comes along. a military veteran with recent service overseas in a war zone. runs up, pulls his shirt off and ties tourniquets around his leg. he managed to make the difference that day. the two kids standing next to each other both lost their legs and here's the president, talking about that very question, will they be able to walk again and he says you'll be able to run again. let's watch. >> so many wounded. some gravely. from their beds, s
